Invitation / Call for Papers: Sustainable Building Restoration and Revitalisation

31.01.2013
2. International Conference on Sustainable Building Restoration and Revitalisation – 2013

25th to 29th September 2013

Shanghai – China
Following the successful conference in 2008, we will hold the second session of the conference in Shanghai. We hereby invite experts and scholars in related fields to attend this conference and submit papers. During the International conference, there will be special training courses on historic building restoration.

Themes:
Topic I: Theory & Research
1. Research on guidelines and standards for sustainable building restoration.
2. Research in timber, masonry and earthen structures & restoration theories.
3. Traditional restoration techniques and innovative materials.

Topic II: Designs & Planning
1. Application of building physics in historic building conservation (energy saving, thermal insulation, moisture, acoustics, fire etc.).
2. Maintenance and evaluation of interior climate of historic buildings.

Topic III: Practice & Case-study
1. Case study on sustainable building restoration.
2. Restoration and maintenance techniques of rural areas.

Training courses & Company Workshops on innovative materials and technology
1. Design concepts for restoration by calculate-tools to describe the performance of the building before and after restoration
2 .Design concepts for building restoration include tests on site and in lab.
3. Application of class innovative materials for restoration.

Purpose:
The conference aims to promote research and application of the outcomes in the fields of historic building conservation, renovation and revitalisation at home and abroad by doing summary and reviews of experiences, to accelerate the application of novelty know how and innovative techniques to the management, renovation, utilization and maintenance of historic buildings as well as to strengthen in-depth dialogues and exchanges between professionals and practitioners.

Target groups:
Members of International Association for Science and Technology, research institutes, universities, government, engineers, architects, historical building preservation institutions, construction units, engineering companies, enterprises and associations.

Presentations:
Presentations should be closely connected to the above mentioned topics, attaching great importance to introducing new findings in building physics and building maintenance and restoration as well as reporting related research progress and developments; be focused on scientific fundamental theories and their consistency so as to promote the sustainability of construction quality and measures of restoration, which in turn, further facilitates the maintenance and preservation of buildings and monuments.

Abstract and presentation requirements:
The participants shall send their abstract (max. one A4 page) to the host committee via our conference website in Chinese or in English (deadline before 1st March 2013). The abstract should include following contents: the theme of the presentation, the name of the author, contact information and the outline of the presentation. Authors will be informed about further presentation requirements if the abstract is accepted. (The standard word-format you will find for download on our conference website)

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
